Texas De Brazil | Churrascaria

For my friends' birthday dinner, we celebrated at  Texas De Brazil , a churrascaria ( Brazillian steakhouse).  For all you carnivores out there I highly recommend this place, I bet you'll feel like you're in heaven: Lovely setup Our waiter recommended a sangria  to pair well with the meats, so we got it! Another drink special, this was quite strong! Other than meat, Texas de Brazil has a salad/buffet area with around 50+ items! The foods I got included (not all are in this photo) were lobster  bisque , sautéed mushrooms, buffalo mozzarella , smoked salmon, asparagus, heart of palm , and Peruvian salad (my most favorite!). Servers came around and gave us chunks or slices of meats. One or two servers came every few minutes, which was nice. They each asked politely if we wanted the meat that they were  serving.  At one point of the dinner, about 6+ servers came to  our group and we were overwhelmed!  I couldn't decide which meats I w

Andre's @ Monte Carlo

During  Las Vegas Restaurant Week /a girls' night out, we ate at  Andre's .  I'm very glad that I was able to go to this beautiful restaurant because their LVRW four course meal is one of the most memorable meals I've ever had!  Along with the set course meal, the ladies ordered two other items: You can barely see the tall glass to the left, that is the Marti-Gras Cocktail- made w/ foie gras , honey, Tahitian vanilla , and vodka.  The items in middle are what came with the drink- ice cream, macerated berries, caramelized pears and candied walnuts. These four tasted wonderful with the drink. As for the drink, it was quite interesting... It felt like I tasted a row of flavors as I drank it, I've never experienced that before!

Sedona, AZ

Earlier in August I went to Sedona, AZ for a relaxing getaway with my love.  Before going there, I wondered how the food would be because I've never heard much about the food in Arizona.  I only assumed their Mexican food was awesome since they're closer to the border than Nevada.  We perused through restaurant reviews online and asked some locals where they liked to eat.  We went to restaurants/cafes based on those suggestions, and out of all the places we ate at, there were three places I really enjoyed: 1)  Cucina Rustica  is a lovely Italian restaurant thats great for a romantic date.  The decorations and atmosphere really did give off a rustic feel. For dinner, I decided to get one of the today's special dishes.  It was the seafood special with mainly clams and shellfish, pasta, and this incredible sauce!  The sauce tasted like it had white wine and a lot of garlic: Seafood Special 2) Elote Cafe   took me by surprise, just everything about this p
